THE POPES APOLOGY FOR THE INQUISITION


THE POPE’S APOLOGY FOR THE INQUISITION
BBC (March 12, 2006)

On Sunday, 12 March, 2000 Pope John Paul II publicly asked God's forgiveness for the sins of Roman Catholics through the ages, including wrongs inflicted on Jews, women and minorities.  

List of apologies made by Pope John Paul II to 2001

The unprecedented gesture by the spiritual leader of the world's one billion Catholics is one of the first major events of the Vatican's year-long celebrations marking the beginning of the new Christian millennium.

"We are asking pardon for the divisions among Christians, for the use of violence that some have committed in the service of truth, and for attitudes of mistrust and hostility assumed toward followers of other religions," said Pope John Paul II, dressed in the purple robes of Lent.

The phrase "violence in the service of truth" is an often-used reference to the treatment of heretics during the Inquisition, the Crusades, and forced conversions of native peoples.

The Pope's homily at The Day of Pardon Mass in St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican did not mention specific groups.

Christians will acknowledge the sins committed by not a few of their number against the people of the Covenant

But confessions of sin made by five Vatican cardinals and two bishops, each with a response from the Pope, did ask for forgiveness for named wrongs.  

Cardinal Edward Cassidy, raising the issue of the treatment of Jews, said:

"Christians will acknowledge the sins committed by not a few of their number against the people of the Covenant."

the Pope responded

"We are deeply saddened by the behaviour of those who in the course of history have caused these children of yours to suffer, and asking your forgiveness we wish to commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood," .

The Roma, or Gypsy people, were also mentioned as having suffered.
